Xnet updates iSoftPhone

Xnet Communications has updated iSoftPhone 2.3, its Mac-based phone emulator that provides desktop telephony services. The new version adds SMS and IM chat, with Growl support, to give the software smartphone abilities. The new SMS features allow users to chat with mobile phone users, sending and receiving SMS communications directly to and from the iSoftPhone interface. The IM (instant messaging) support allows IM conversations with users of iSoftPhone and desktop IM software. In addition, Growl support adds the ability to answer callers from Growl notifications. Version 2.3 is compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 and later, and is available now for $35.

The update also brings 'presence feature' that allows users to view availability of contacts and block visibility as an option. The software is integrated with the Mac OS X Address Book and allows free phone calls to other iSoftPhone users as well as supports VPN, conference calling, call recording, call transfers, and call history. iSoftPhone also has a configuration tool for VoIP set-up and supports multiple providers.
